As the weather changes, it's important to understand how it can affect individuals and families facing crisis. Whether it's the scorching heat or the feelings of isolation that come with the season, we want to explore how you can navigate these challenges and offer support to yourself and those around you. In this blog post, we'll discuss the impact of the changing weather and discover ways we can come together to provide assistance, resources, and engaging activities during this time.
Be Mindful of the Weather: As the temperatures rise, it's essential to take care of yourself and stay hydrated. Remember to drink plenty of water, especially if you're spending time outdoors. Seek shade or cool places during the hottest parts of the day to avoid heat exhaustion. And don't forget sun cream to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
Support Others: In times of crisis, reaching out to others can make a significant difference. Check on your neighbours, friends, or family members who may be facing difficulties. A simple phone call or a friendly chat can provide much-needed emotional support. Offer a helping hand by running errands or assisting with tasks they may find challenging during this season.
Connect with CN4C: At Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change (CN4C), we're here to support you.
